Crowns: Is it right for me?
Once upon a time, if the nerve in your tooth was diseased, you'd probably lose that tooth. Today with a special dental procedure called a root canal therapy we save that tooth. Inside each tooth there is a pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth; it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don't remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it.
They are either metal in overlaid ceramic or the newest and state of the art "All Ceramic@ Crowns that not only are more esthetic and tissue friendly but also as strong as ceramic metal crowns. these crowns gives you an enhanced more life like result and impeccable beauty and esthetics mimicking that of natural teeth".
Is a Bridge right for me?
If you have missing teeth, a bridge prevents the remaining natural teeth from shifting, so that dental arch integrity and esthetics are not compromised. They are permanent, fixed alternatives to tedious removable partial dentures.
The missing teeth are replaced with an artificial tooth connected between 2 crowns (caps) that are permanently connected on the adjacent teeth. They are either ceramic-metal bridges or the recent All Ceramic Bridges.
